I'm looking into this.  It is likely that it has to do with the bugfix
that was done in the 0.4.1 release.  The "fix" might have revealed another
bug.  Thanks for reporting this.

The documentation says that it supports the Intel PLUGIN to MSVC 6, which
uses the Visual Studio standard library.  Therefore, just use msvc6 as the
compiler name, and the produced code will reflect what is seen by the
plugin compiler.  Support for intel's standalone compiler is not currently
provided, but it probably added relatively easily.  Contact me off the
list if you are interested in persuing this.

That is an oversight in the implementation that no one has noticed until
now.  The compiler simulation flags are added first, and then the user
flags.  It should be the other way around.  I've fixed this in the CVS
head of the GCC-XML front-end.  If you check it out from CVS (insturctions
on web page), you can build it and still use the gccxml_cc1plus exectuable
from 0.4.1.
